We are working with a wide variety of industry, government, not-for-profit and community organisations. If your organisation is facing a technical challenge, Monash IT researchers can help to investigate and implement a new and practical solution.
HCC researchers are at the forefront of research into innovative computer interfaces including wearables, mixed reality, tangible interfaces as well as NLP, touch and gesture based interfaces. They are experts in designing human centred solutions in which humans and computer partner to solve difficult, seemingly intractable problems.
Honeywell Building Solutions
Bringing together next-generation technology and research to deliver one of the world's first 'cognitive office buildings'. Using the convenience of today's smartphones, the Honeywell Vector Occupant App is being deployed across the Monash Clayton Campus collecting data on how staff and students rate spaces and navigate buildings; report faults, and how often and when buildings are accessed. The data feeds into Honeywell's Command and Control Suite based in the Future Control Room at Monash where simple, intuitive displays are available to building operations teams. The data visualisations allow them to enhance facilities and security management, and to create comfortable spaces for students and staff while reducing energy consumption.
Woodside Energy Ltd
Woodside is Australia’s largest independent oil and gas company. They have a growing global presence and have partnered with Monash to identify and commercialise innovative new technologies. We have collaborated with Woodside Energy Ltd. to develop state of the art optimisation and visualisation technology to support the design of equipment and pipes in chemical plants. Our technology integrates realistic requirements, such as flexibility, maintenance and support constraints; produces 3D optimal (within a given gap) plant designs in just a few hours for medium and large size plants (1000+ pieces of equipment and connecting pipe segments); and can be visually and collaboratively explored via a web-server interface.
Potential to access government funding with Monash IT
Collaborating with Monash University on research projects means you can potentially benefit from considerable funding from the Australian government. There are several grant schemes available through the Commonwealth and Victorian State governments to support partnerships between academia and industry, and to encourage applied research.
